It is reported that during a state visit to Ukraine

  • President Herzog will speak at the official events dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the tragedy in Babi Yar;
  • Together with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, he will take part in the opening of the Kiev Holocaust Memorial Center at Babi Yar;

  • Will meet with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Prime Minister Denis Shmygal;
  • Will speak to the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada;
  • Will meet with representatives of the Ukrainian Jewish community.

Need to speak

“We need to keep talking about this terrible event and learning its lessons. The Holocaust Memorial Center at Babi Yar is an important place for preserving this painful memory and for the statements that we must continue to make together: never again. The only way to build a present and a future in which crimes against humanity will not find support – it is to study the past, including the Holocaust and the persecution of the Jewish people, in the spirit of the commandment “and you will tell your son and daughter.”

Commemorative events

We reported that new sculptures were installed in Babi Yar in Kiev, which caused an ambiguous reaction from city residents.

On September 29, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky paid tribute to the memory of the victims of the Babi Yar tragedy and announced that on this day, a national lesson dedicated to the tragedy will be held in all Ukrainian schools.

We will also remind that Zelensky recalled the creepy announcements in which Jews were invited to be shot.
